Sony has reported selling 980,000 thousand Playstation 2 consoles since the new machines Japanese launch on Saturday, very near to Sony's pre-launch prediction of one million consoles sold in the first two days of release. The figure is better than ten times the sales racked up by the original Playstation at its launch, though the Playstation 2 numbers include online sales of consoles that have not yet been delivered. Of 380,000 consoles ordered online, only 120,000 have been shipped. The company is promising that deliveries will be completed within two weeks. Sony has reported that production has fallen as much as ten days behind schedule due to shortages of memory cards. Sony also reports that it has shipped 1.3 million games for the Playstation 2.
